Better Things – Laugh, Don’t Pull Your Hair Out!

Long days, late nights, endless to-do lists — do these things sound familiar? Do certain situations make you feel like screaming into your pillow? Do Better Things call you?

Better Things – Laugh, Don’t Pull Your Hair Out!

A mom you can relate to on the FX Network

 

If you are a mom, you bet they do! Stumbling through days with little-to-no sleep, but still managing to drive carpool, go to work, give homework help, take care of household chores, nurse your little sickies, and get dinner on the table doesn’t leave you much “me” time. As a mom, you are always sacrificing for your children, and you wouldn’t have it any other way, but you are still, YOU. So, let your style and personality shine, and get ready for Better Things.

 

Being exhausted at the end of the day, and knowing you have that last load of laundry you have to finish (because your daughter swears she’ll die if she doesn’t have that outfit to wear to school the next day), can make you want to pull your hair out. Well, stop pulling and start laughing!

Better Things, a NEW comedy series created by Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon for FX Network airs Thursdays at 10PM. Every mom will relate to Adlon’s character, Sam, a single mother raising three daughters. Like any mom, Sam wears many hats — mom, dad, referee, and the cops.

Watch pieces of your life unfold on screen as Sam navigates motherhood, a job, and a wannabe social life with little-to-no filter. Rory and I found ourselves smirking and laughing at some of the scenes that could have come straight from our lives. I guarantee you will have your own life moments flooding back to memory. Feel the validation! Roll your eyes with frustration. Love the heartwarming moments. Snicker at the hilarity.  Enjoy the triumphs. And realize you are not alone. Get together with your girlfriends and watch Better Things.

How-To Get Freebies

Freebies! Who doesn’t love them? Let’s take a look at where you may be missing out on some awesome freebies…

How-To Get Freebies

 

The only thing better than getting stuff is getting free stuff, as the saying goes. While there are many great coupons at Discountrue.com with which you can save a lot of money in Kohl’s or other popular shops, there are few things better than being given free things outright. So, how can we maximize our ability to soak up all of the awesome free stuff that’s out there for us to snag? Read on for some helpful tips!

 

Signing Up For Rewards Cards

 

Whether it’s when we get our morning coffee at Dunkin Donuts, or when we head to the mall to go shopping, we are inundated with offers to sign up for rewards cards. Most of us decline and continue on our merry way, but if you are someone who frequents a certain location on a regular basis, why not be compensated for it? A variety of outlets and retailers offer their regular customers the chance to accrue points to collect free items at a later date.

 

Use Your 401(k)

 

If you are not utilizing the 401(k) plan at your current place of employment, you are leaving money on the table in the form of matching contributions. The vast majority of employers will match any amount that you are contributing to your own 401(k), and even if you end up quitting, cashing out and paying the penalty, you are still likely to turn a profit.

 

Food Samples

 

Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, and Publix have all been known to provide free food samples to hungry shoppers. Check the stores in your area to see which days these stores choose to put out samples and you may luck out even more by experiencing a wine tasting. If you make it to Publix or Trader’s Joe on the right day, their samples are almost the same size as a full meal, so be sure to bring your appetite!

 

Foraging For Fruit

 

Fruit lovers who are consistently frustrated with the selection at their local supermarket are probably unaware of the fact that there is a bevy of public land where you can pick fresh fruits to heart’s content, completely free of charge. To find out where you are allowed to go foraging for fruit in your area, head to FallingFruit.org and they will help you to locate your best opportunities.

 

Get a TV Antenna

 

With so many programs offering viewers a chance to enjoy a live stream and a number of websites providing a free place to watch television after the fact, the average person who is constantly on the go does not have the same amount of time to watch television as they used to. So why keep that expensive cable box, when you can get an antenna for your television and receive the same ten channels everyone else watches for free?

 

Do you have any great ideas or suggestions?

Gilmore Girls Theme Song

Gilmore Girls is one of our most favorite TV series of all time. My daughter and I LOVE this show, and we find we have so much in common with Lorelai and Rory… Bring me some COFFEE!!!

The young at heart, fun loving, witty banter makes us smile. And there is nothing like a few quirky characters to add laughter and spice to your life.

Well, it’s late, so I’d better set my furry alarm clock and head off to Sleepyland …
